Gibbs - A word of caution

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

With Gibbs at the helm, how do you think the Skins will do next year?

They'll get worse.

I voted playoffs. I think we have the nucleus of a very good team - they just need some discipline and decent coaching.

I'll tell you something, under Gibbs, we won't committ so many penalties and we'll find ways to win rather than ways to lose.

ummm...I think Coach Gibbs would give the both of you a very stern look, and silence you. He'd then tell you that Dallas just made a great run to the playoffs, and whipped us soundly the last two times they faced us. He'd go on and on about how sturdy a runner they have in Hambrick, and an excellent WR in Galloway who is a shoo in for the Pro Bowl every year except for some injuries. He'd tell you boys (now wearing a very sullen, pouty look on your faces) about their head coach, who has been there and done that with every team he has ever coached.
Yes, he would. Every word would be in every paper the very next day. Dallas, of course, would read it...and their heads would swell...
Then, we'd kick the living sh*t out of 'em !
Welcome back, Coach Gibbs !

Oh, 666...
I do try. I LOVE this team. I always have. My heart was torn out when Joe left us, and again when they cut Monk a year later. I KNOW this team, through and through. I have five kids, man. They all had little Redskins sleepers when they were in their cribs. I live in NY, and they've been (as I have) ridiculed and harrassed for their choice of team. I hope for deliverance every year. I think I may finally have it.

i feel ya, i'm in NC. there are some "old school' fans here, that were fans of the gibbskins.(myself included....too young to remember the early eighties, but old enuff to pay attention and like what i was seeing around the 87 SB) but most have been converted to panther fans by our recent lack of play, and the cats playoff run.... :roll:

Yep... that was one of Gibbs' trademarks during his first stop here... always talking up the opponent (to the point that the local media gave him a hard time about it in the papers and on the air). This time around I don't think he'll receive criticism for that..... in part because the 'Skins have been so unsuccessful for over a decade. They seriously can't afford to overlook ANYBODY.

Now I look forward to the day that people have a reason to poke fun at him for talking up an obviously overmatched opponent :D

I agree we should make the playoffs. With the talent on this team that is a realistic goal. No pressure but Gibbs should get the skins into the post season.
Death to all things remotely BLUE and SILVER!!!!!!!!!!! Hail Skins

I don't see an easy schedule. Don't forget, ..."on any given sunday..."
My wife is from Fayetteville, 666. Don't I have good taste ?
I'm glad everybody caught on to my imaginary Joe Gibbs game-day speech. This is how he made people feel in that locker room. Nobody is easy to beat at this level of football. The only thing between our Washington Redskins and the SuperBowl, year in and year out, are those pesky 16 games you have to show up and play in. All we need to do is win a majority of those, and we have as a good a chance as anyone.
